Schur is producing with David Mimran, Walker, Nick Thurlow and Steven Schneider. Walker’s Laguna Ridge is also producing, with Matt Luber and Brandon Virtell exec producing. Adam Minarovich wrote the screenplay. Mimran Schur is financing.

The film is a dark comedy about a man searching for his abducted wife, a couple of white-supremacist meth heads and a sad sack Elvis impersonator all linked through items sold or found in a small Southern town’s local pawn shop.

“This is a superbly written mind-bender of a story that grabs you from the first line, and doesn’t let go,” stated Schur. “We are incredibly fortunate to have found Wayne Kramer to present it, and equally thrilled with the diverse and talented cast assembled.”

What a great cast. And, of course, Vincent is away from New York, again. Wonder if he'll be there for his birthday.
